The nominees are:

Howl’s Moving Castle (Buena Vista) Hayao Miyazaki
Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride (Warner Bros.) Tim Burton and Mike Johnson
Wallace & Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit (DreamWorks Animation SKG) Nick Park and Steve Box

CG was shut out. Big smile on my face…This is a great list of nominees. I thought the hand-drawn HOWL’S MOVING CASTLE was one of Miyazaki’s best (though I know many who disagree with me on that), the puppets of TIM BURTON’S CORPSE BRIDE took the craft of stop-motion animation to the heights of the art, and WALLACE AND GROMIT combined storytelling, character animation, and big laughs into a feature-length adventure with skill and charm. I loved them all – but may the best man, dog and rabbit win.
